Bianca Belair has recalled the “celebration” following her monumental WrestleMania main event, which featured the first-ever women’s singles match in that spot and was contested between two Black women on the Grandest Stage of Them All for the first time in history.
“Everyone was backstage, the whole female locker room was backstage in Gorilla. When we first came through the curtain, you know, the women, actually, I think they got to go out in the audience and watch it, which is really rare because we’re always in the ring or we’re backstage watching on the screen. We hardly ever get to go in the audience and watch it and feel it. So the women went out there and watched it. But then they came straight back to being behind the curtain when I came through and it was just a moment of just empowerment, everybody celebrating, everybody being excited because my husband was back there, TJ was back there. He was our producer who was amazing. We celebrated with him.”
Belair went on to add that she “FINALLY” got her Triple H photo – where The Game points to a new champion, usually someone he’s overseen the growth and progress of from NXT.
“Triple H was back there and I finally got my point picture with him. Everybody, you know, I always wanted that picture in NXT when everybody, anyone with the title, they got to take a pointing picture with him. I was like, ‘Oh, I finally get my picture.’ But it was just celebration. My whole entire family was there. Our brother was there, who watched wrestling growing up, and we had a moment of like, he’s like, ‘You just won WrestleMania.’ I’m like, ‘I know this is wow. It feels like it should be you, you know, because you were the big wrestling fan.’ So it was just a big celebration.”
